Why An Alaskan Lodge Is The Perfect Place to Detox and Get Away

December 20, 2019

Need to get away from the rest of the world?

Do the whole ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ thing?

An Alaskan lodge is the perfect getaway. Alaskan lodges are known for their ability to transport you to another world entirely — inspiring you creatively and allowing you to hit the reset button on your life. Living in a fast-paced society and work environment can take its toll on you, so if you feel the need to hit pause and take a breather, this could be the best way to do so.

Continue reading to learn more about how Alaskan lodges offer the perfect vacation away from the hustle and bustle.

You’ll forget about technology

Sometimes we have to take a step back from the thing that we believe keeps our lives on track.

Technology.

Lodges allow you to do just that. You could have everything you need within the confines of a lodge. No technology required. You can ignore those emails and log out of social media without skipping a beat. All you need is right within an arm’s reach.

You can reconnect with your loved ones

When’s the last time you have a genuine conversation with your family? Has it been a while? Most families struggle to connect in this day in age. Mix-matched schedules can be a real source of conflict. For example, your spouse may not get home from work until late into the evening, when you’re already on the other side of town picking up your son or daughter from soccer practice.

Alternatively, you may work the night shift and never see your relatives and loved ones aside from the weekends. But that’s just not enough time. Lodges, on the other hand, serve as your home away from home while visiting Alaska. They have enough space to accommodate most families so you can keep everyone under one roof while vacationing.

You may have never experienced a vacation like this before

Our unique experiences make us who we are. If you’ve never taken a solo trip, seasoned world travelers recommend you try it at least once in your life. Alaska is the best place to start.

Mainly for the fresh air and exercise you'll experience.

Vacation can mean a lot of different things to different people. While some people enjoy napping away on a hammock, others enjoy getting out and exploring the new terrain. The state offers 3.2 million acres of land and water, so you'll never be bored.

Alaska is right in your backyarD

Well, not technically. But it is a part of the United States, and thus quite easy to travel to if you’re not an experienced globe trotter. Traveling can feel stressful when you’re worried about visas and incredibly long plane rides. You should enjoy the journey there too, and Alaska is a lot closer than most exotic islands. Getting to the state is significantly easier than crossing over to the other side of the world.

Lodges provide the perfect backdrop for creatives

The sights and sounds of the beautiful state are sure to provoke your creativity in new ways. If you’re a creative who can’t seem to get out of a rut, consider venturing out of your comfort zone. The beauty of Alaska is sure to envoke new feelings and emotions that will help power your creative works — whether you’re a writer, singer, or artist.

Selecting the best vacation spot

As you can see, Alaskan lodges serve many wonderful purposes if you’re trying to get away from the real world. Whether you want to reconnect with your family, feel more inspired, or just treat yourself to an Alaska all inclusive luxury lodge, the Stillpoint Lodge is the way to go for these reasons and more.
